Carving wax with Kate Wolf great workshop


#1

Hi All,

I just finished yet another 5 day workshop carving wax with Kate
Wolf at her Portland Maine studio. I’ve taken several of these
workshops, not because I don’t get it, but because I do get it. Each
time I have completed a session with Kate I leave fully gratified and
satisfied that my wax carving, and person are better off because of
the experience.

Whether you are an absolute beginner, or an advanced carver you will
benefit from both Kates’ knowledge of the industry and her open and
loving way of embracing each and every student. All who cross her
threshold leave feeling better about themselves and the craft/art of
making something from nothing.

In addition, Kates’ new and innovative tool line makes the job much
easier and more enjoyable.

Thanks Kate,
David

I have met her at a couple of shows and she seems like a great
person, kind of a gentle soul, and probably a great teacher i would
really like to take a course from her how much was it? I’ll bet i
could defineately write it off. I’ll bet Maine is beautiful this
time of year.

Hi David!

I second everything you said! The class was so chock full of
and “ah-ha’s”! I never thought there would be THAT much
going into the class and found myself thinking (and
voicing) that just the info taught in each segment was worth the
price and effort to get there and attend.

Kate is so knowledgable and very willing to share her knowledge. She
is friendly and a world class raconteur! I haven’t laughed so much
in a very long time!

If anyone thinks they know it all already, well, they don’t! I will
certainly be back up next year!

The people in the class were awesome too!

Wicked fabulous! And the tools ROCK!!!

Thanks Kate!!!

What does a 5 day class cost?

What does a 5 day class cost? 

When I went to her basic carving workshop in 2005 it was $750. Her
2008 workshop schedule with class prices is heRe:

I agree with everyone else, it was a wonderful workshop, and well
worth every penny.

Aside from all the wax carving education, we learned hands-on how to
fit and sharpen gravers, received tons of little shop tricks and
tips,
and we laughed almost constantly throughout the week.

If Kate ever got out of jewelry, she could easily create another
career for herself as a stand-up comic.

As a bonus, Portland, Maine is a really cool and very pretty town!

I took a few days off (fighting round two of a bad cold/asthma
thingy) and logged on to catch up on my email. This stuff is better
than the meds my doc just gave me!

I’m blessed. I’ve got the best job in the world- being around fun
people who are curious and love to learn and laugh.

2009’s schedule will be on the web mid-November. A five day
workshop, in Maine is $750 including materials and a kit. (The price
at New Approach School in Virginia Beach is higher to cover travel
and shipping expenses.) The studios are fully equipped, a flex shaft,
wax carvers, wax pen and hand tools at each bench.

Thank you so much for your kind words!
